You are invited to step into a quiet place and leave the busy world behind, to breathe in the fresh mountain air and to relax. The Carriage House at Dutton Hill is a comfortable four season retreat with modern amenities in a quintessential New England setting. This attractive second floor two-bedroom apartment with a modern kitchen, inviting vaulted living room and balcony that overlooks rich fields, vibrant trees and distant mountains is just 1.5 miles from Norwich, Vermont. It is the perfect launching pad for exploring all that the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire has to offer.
Adventures in Autumn
When the air begins to feel crisp and the first hints of red and gold appear in the treetops it’s time to pack your bags, dig those rugged boots out from the back of the closet, slip on a light fleece and come to our Carriage House. We will welcome you with a happy hour and a roaring fire in our outdoor fire pit or we will leave you to your peaceful pursuit and star studded views.
When the only sound is the crunching beneath your boots or the swishing of your skis then you know you have truly escaped the rest of the world. Whatever your winter dream is – whether it is ambling along a snow covered country path in the quiet chill of the season, or hitting the slopes for an all day excursion – you will find it here and the warmth of the Carriage House is the perfect place to return to after your day of discovery.
Launch into Spring
As the snow recedes, the daffodils, tulips and crocus spring to life, the leaves reappear and the Carriage House is surrounded with an unmatched vibrancy. This is the ideal time to hike the trails – or better yet – bring your mountain bike and get muddy. Let us pack a picnic for you to enjoy on your excursion. Area attractions such as Quechee Gorge, glass blowing at Simon Pierce and shopping in historic Woodstock begin to bustle with visitors once again.
Simply Spectacular Summer
The beauty of the summer in Norwich and its surrounds can not be rivaled. It is warm but not hot and cool but not cold. Endless possibilities for fun happenings await you at the Carriage House so plan to stay for a whole week if you can manage it. There is something for everyone from the sports enthusiast, to the history buff, to the foodie, to the shopper. Just get here and we’ll help you find your perfect venture.
The Upper Valley where the Carriage House resides is a friendly, relaxed place that offers up the best of what Mother Nature provides. And the greatest thing about our little spot on Dutton Hill is the landscape. When you take in the view all the anxiety of life just melts away, your shoulders relax, you inhale deeply and you just plain feel good.
